Thats good news. Is there "most popular" which I often used when downloading new bands to look at the top 3-4 shows, read the reviews and go from there. What tools do you find handy. Seems many features may be for uploaders not downloaders which is fine to insure the flow of new music.

Don't seem to have most popular list anymore (at least not yet). I agree, this was a useful feature. However, you can essentially "duplicate" this with the search function within the band collection. For example, sort by rating gets you the highest rated shows. You can use the advanced search to search for best rated within certain years, certain venues, etc. And you do still see "top downloads" on the band collection page (at least for some that I've looked at).

Also, see my comments here:

Top downloads would be it. Just for reference for anyone looking to DL flac or shn files without the "whole show" option available- I did as was suggested and installed Firefox and Down Them All extention. Fast to load, easy to use even for compumorons like me. Once installed, click on the FTP option to the left of the show info. Then right click, then choose Down Them All, click on the circle to the left of the file you want to download, save it to a folder and off it goes.Pretty cool actually. I can understand now why there are so many fans of this program. If you have any problems just ask.

Yeah, and DTA used to be buggier, and now it seems better to me in the last few months. So if someone used it before but hasn't updated or tried it out in a while, give a try!

I agree. I use DownThemAll even when I had the whole show zip file option....found it faster in some cases.

By the way, you don't have to select each file you want to download. I setup filters within DTA that will automatically select only the FLAC, only the vbr.mp3, etc. Then this is *really* easy.
